HS2 route change threatens unfinished estate in Mexborough

This week HS2 Ltd announced proposals, which have not yet been confirmed by the DfT, to reroute a large chunk of HS2 to the East through South Yorkshire. Whilst there are several communities now dragged into the HS2 mess, the one which so far has grabbed the headlines is the Shimmer Estate in Mexborough. Still under construction, HS2 would go right through the middle of it on a high viaduct if the new plans are adopted.

We will publish some helpful information for all those in communities which are now under the threat of HS2 on Sunday, but for now here’s how the BBC and ITV local news covered the story.
